An error message occurs for a snapshot using a policy until the retention count is reached (3931139)
A CloudPoint snapshot policy includes a retention level that determines how many snapshots that are created by the policy are preserved. For example, if the retention level is 4, when the policy creates new snapshots, it deletes older snapshots until a total of four snapshots remain. This limitation occurs when there are fewer snapshots than specified in the retention policy. For example, if the retention policy is 4, the first time the policy takes a snapshot, there are no snapshots to delete. CloudPoint writes an error message to the log. In this example, the error message displays after each snapshot operation until CloudPoint needs to delete a snapshot to implement the retention policy.
This issue does not affect snapshot functionality.
